TUBI AND LIONSGATE ENTER EXCLUSIVE MULTI-YEAR CONTENT DEAL FOR SLATE OF FILMS

 

FOX Entertainment’s Free Streaming Service to be the Premier AVOD Home to 30 New Features, Including Recent Releases “Shattered,” Starring John Malkovich, Frank Grillo, Cameron Monaghan and Lily Krug; and “Pursuit,” Starring John Cusack and Emile Hirsch

 

SAN FRANCISCO and SANTA MONICA, CA, June 14, 2022 – Tubi (www.tubi.tv), FOX Entertainment’s free ad-supported streaming service, today announced it has entered an exclusive multi-year slate deal with global content leader Lionsgate (NYSE: LGF.A, LGF.B) to become the premier AVOD home to 30 new feature films. The partnership also includes more than 200 Lionsgate fan-favorite titles that will be added to Tubi’s popular library.

 

Now available on Tubi is “Shattered,” starring John Malkovich, Frank Grillo, Cameron Monaghan, and Lily Krug, with “Pursuit,” starring John Cusack and Emile Hirsch, coming to the service on June 27 and “Wolf Hound,” starring Trevor Donavan, James Maslow and Michael Wayne Foster, coming to the service this fall. These films will join additional soon-to-be announced star-driven titles that include such talent as Morgan Freeman, Bruce Willis, Mel Gibson, Anna Paquin and Martin Lawrence.

 

“We’re thrilled to be expanding our long-standing partnership with Lionsgate,” said Adam Lewinson, Chief Content Officer at Tubi. “Bringing together an exclusive free offering of thirty upcoming releases, as well as beloved movies and series from Lionsgate’s world-class content library, will deliver even more value to our viewers.”

 

“This agreement reflects our ability to have multiple bespoke content licensing deals with an expanding array of buyers in every part of the content ecosystem,” said Lionsgate President of Domestic Television Distribution Ryan Lowerre. “We’re pleased to expand our longstanding relationship with Tubi, a leader among AVOD platforms, to bring an exciting slate of star-driven multiplatform films to their viewers.”

 

Films encompassed by the agreement include, among many others:

 

“Shattered” – now available and exclusively free to stream

An action thriller starring Academy Award Nominee John Malkovich (“Red”) and Frank Grillo (“Avengers: Endgame”), “Shattered” follows lonely tech millionaire Chris (Cameron Monaghan, “Shameless”) who encounters charming, s*xy Sky (Lily Krug, “Every Breath You Take”), and passion grows between them. When he’s injured, she quickly steps in as his nurse. But Sky’s odd behavior makes Chris suspect that she has more sinister intentions, especially when Sky’s roommate is found dead from mysterious causes.

 

“Pursuit” – exclusively free to stream beginning June 27

John Cusack (“Grosse Pointe Blank”) and Emile Hirsch (“Into the Wild”) star in this action thriller about a tough cop’s hunt for an even tougher criminal. Detective Breslin crosses paths with Calloway (Hirsch), a ruthless hacker desperate to find his wife, who has been kidnapped by a drug cartel. When Calloway escapes police custody, Breslin joins forces with a no-nonsense female cop to reclaim his prisoner. But is Calloway’s crime-boss father (Cusack) somehow involved in this explosive situation?

 

“Wolf Hound” – exclusively free to stream Fall 2022

Starring Trevor Donavan (“90210”), James Maslow (“Big Time Rush”) and Michael Wayne Foster (“Embattled”), and based on the real-life Nazi program KG 200, “Wolf Hound” chronicles the story of a Jewish-American pilot shot down behind enemy lines. With little more than his wits and a sidearm, he must outsmart a brilliant enemy, rescue his captured crew, and foil a plot that could change the course of the war.

 

The agreement encompasses titles not covered under Lionsgate’s Pay One theatrical output agreement with Starz.
